Number one, don’t perpetuate rape culture

The advice we would give to anyone involved is, number one, don't perpetuate rape culture. PLEASE, don't perpetuate rape culture! Don't have your first question be "What were you wearing or drinking?" People still say that all of the time, it's not something in the past. [...] Don't victim blame and just believe survivors, right?! Be compassionate, and yeah, that's my biggest thing: Fuck off with rape culture.
